Police say Leon-Alvarez went on a date with a woman he met at a different police call. The woman had been in an argument with her boyfriend, they say.

The suspect and victim came back to her home where Leon-Alvarez allegedly forced himself on her.

The victim's roommate told police she got a notification on her cellphone from the security camera. She says she heard the victim say goodnight, and then heard her say "no" and "please stop" several times.
